Admitted Students

Congratulations on being admitted to the University of Tennessee! We wish you a Big Orange welcome to the Volunteer family. You’re just a few steps away from making it official!

First, you’ll need to activate your free UT e-mail address, which is the official means of communication between you and the university. Check this account often for important updates about housing, orientation, course registration, and much more.

  • Log into your VIP account to get your student ID and NetID. Your NetID is your university username.
  • Once you have your NetID, visit to set up your password.
  • With your NetID and password, you can log into MyUTK, where you will activate your UT e-mail address (Volmail). Visit the Volmail Setup website if you have question about activating your free UT e-mail account.
